Introduction
I am a PhD researcher working within the intersection of Human Computer Interaction, Music and Artificial Intelligence. My work is centred around Codetta: a block-based platform for music composition. For my PhD, I am specifically exploring how to incorporate generative music into children's composition processes using AI, towards better supporting their creativity.

Identifying points of engagement from a person’s interaction with computers could be used to assess their experience and to adapt user interfaces in real-time. However, it is difficult to identify points of engagement unobtrusively; HCI studies typically use retrospective protocols or rely on cumbersome sensors for real-time analysis. We present a...

Recent advances in generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) have led to a design trend of user interfaces supporting novices in co-creating with AI. Typically, these tools aim to extend novices' abilities and democratise the more difficult aspects of creative practice. We suggest that designing for reflection mig...

Explainable AI has the potential to support more interactive and fluid co-creative AI systems which can creatively collaborate with people. To do this, creative AI models need to be amenable to debugging by offering eXplainable AI (XAI) features which are inspectable, understandable, and modifiable. However, currently there is very little XAI for t...

Composing is a neglected area of music education. To increase participation, many technologies provide open-ended interfaces to motivate child autodidactic use, drawing influence from Papert’s LOGO philosophy to support children’s learning through play. This paper presents a case study examining which interactions with Codetta, a LOGO-inspired, blo...

Iterative design methods involving children and educators are difficult to conduct, given both the ethical implications and time commitments understandably required. The qualitative design process presented here recruits introductory teacher training students, in order to discover useful design insights relevant to music education technologies 'by...
